Random words + Chuck + Jay Chou

The dead walls I pondered upon
Chest pressing tightly against my knees
Through every limbs the shiver ran wildly
Distant light shot through the darkness
Killing the cold air with a rush of comfort
The walls were once again alive.


Today, I am damn lazy to do any studying so instead I caught up with my "Chuck". It is now into the forth season with new enemy volkram or something like that, which has something to do with his mother, a new BUYMORE, still tackling lies about the spy thingy with his now pregnant sister, and trying to communicate more effectively with Sarah, his super spy girlfriend.


Also, today I tried singing some of Jay Chou's songs by finding the pinyin for the songs and his songs I must admit, are not easy to sing. After about 3-4 songs, my throat kind of hurts probably because I strained it too much. But, I still continued with a flatter tone of course, had to take it easy. Then, it occured to me, what do these songs of his means? After I found the translated versions of the songs, I was impressed. The songs are very meaningful, not your typical "I miss you", "I love you", "I want you back" kind of lyrics. I was speechless at how he showed his feelings in the lyrics. WOO~~

Okay...raining now. SLEEP!

Entering the second half of my degree

Now, I am in the second semester, 3rd year of my degree. When start to count, there is one, two, three, four more semester (not including this one) till I graduate. The first thing I realised is that, I am a bit bored of studying already. Every semester, taking in new stuff, assignment, final exam, then new semester again. All this repetition is boring me and wearing me out. Probably everything will change when I go for my Industrial Training in June 2011. After that, I will either have refresh myself and will again enjoy studying, or probably suer sick of studying and want to get right to inventing or making something or maybe just maintain something, whatever an engineer does.

So this semester, after all those people left, I feel quite free. So, I decided to continue learning Japanese language and enrolled myself in a Japanese language class. Funny though when I entered the class, only four people enrolled in the class. At the end of the class, then only I realised there is another class and I was supposed to join that class because I had basics already which I picked up last semester from my foreign language subject. But nevermind, because I found myself a new mission now! due to the class that I joined. I hope everything goes well. I need to act fast! My reaction is always slow...haih

Feeling a bit sad =(

New semester. After 2 weeks of no proper sleep eventhough it was the holidays thanks to fluid dynamics, I am back in Malacca!

This semester however, it's going to be quite quiet coz basically, I am the only one of the A-03-08 that have not go to work. Everyone has gone and experience the working life. Makes me want to go to work too...They say enjoy your University life while you are still studying but I feel a bit left out here. Maybe after finding a new group of gang then I might overcome this. Seriously miss them, the noisiness and the laughters.

So, this semester I got a new roommate. My previous roommate Jackson has just joined the working community and my new roommate, his name is Jackson as well. What a coincidence eh...The main differences is that, he dont play basketball and he dont play DoTA. Maybe I can concentrate studying more now, who knows. Talking about this, this is my the 1...2...3...4...5...6th roommate in my three years of studies. It's hard tuning yourself so that you dont become a nuisance to your roommate. This is the 6th time I am going to tune myself. Hopefully, wont change again, but I have a feeling maybe I will have to again. It's just a hunch.

Starting the new semester with this song,

Nearly broke my toes

Before last week, the last time I played basketball was more than a month ago. Yesterday, I woke up sort of late for basketball with my friends. So I rushed and forgot my shoes.

While playing, I wanted to block this guy's shot. Rarely, I found such a nice opportunity to block people, so I rushed in and smacked the ball. For his shot attempt, he jumped forward towards me. So, I jumped backwards to block his shot. The guy did not release the ball and continue to hold it in his hands which caused my whole body to sort of rotate towards being horizontal in mid-air. Then, I landed with only my left leg in the position shown below and my right leg stretched in front of me.

No other body part was in contact with the ground so that all my weight is supported only by my left leg. Fortunately, there is a moment (spinning action) still acting on my body which made my upper body lean towards the back. Feeling that my left leg is compressed to the maximum, my stomach muscle loosened and allow my body to lean to the back. Once my upper body nearly touched the floor, my right hand auto reacted by smacking the palm of my hand on the ground and my whole body came to equilibrium. It's like in the kungfu movies where the kungfu guy smackes the ground to bounce himself up again when falling just that I did not bounce up back. After that, I felt the joint in my toes aching but I still continued to play on. Adrenalin is a good thing; it makes you pain when supposingly you should be hurting like hell. Same thing happened when I sprained my right ankle last time, I continued playing with the help of adrenalin. hahaha...not until I came home did I felt the aching joints all over my left leg below the knee and on my right hand from the elbow down. "Basketball is physical sport. If there is no contact, it is not basketball." as quoted by the international referee that conducted the referee clinic.

This post ends with a laugh on my side escaping the possibility of breaking my toes. WAHAHAHAHA =)

Baby I'm back here~~

hey hey, after so long. finally i got the mood and time to update this blog. Last semester was super hectic with tons of assignments and those assignements aren't just your normal assignments. Here they are,

This is the first one. Had to organize a trip to a manufacturing company and write a report containing the manufacturing management techniques used by the company.

Next is using a drawing software called CATIA to draw anything that contains five moving parts. You know what this is? It's a toilet flush mechanism! Proud of this thing but the marks the lecturer gave me was not that high... =(

Third is this thing here. Using a CNC milling machine, we need to think of a logo, write the appropriate programming to cut that logo out and...input it into the machine and the machine will automatically cut the shape out for you. But the lecturer did not gave me high scores for this sad...=(

this semester, for the finals...I think i might have screwed up one subject. I did not allocate enough time to study that subject. I shall keep my fingers crossed and see how my results will turn out x/


Someone once told me...

Knowledge is obtained through your own effort and hard work. Keep it up!

"A's" are for God, "B's" are for lecturers, "C's" are for students and "F's" are for animals.

A good leader will always be the first person to arrive and the last person to leave.

Try to smile no matter what, cause you never know when your smile could lighten up someone's day as well as it will lighten up mine.

There are two types of leader, "THE EFFECTIVE - result based without considering the procedure" and "THE EFFICIENT - procedure based without considering the results"

Success is not Final and Failure is not Fatal

Original version
"If it doesn't kills you, it will only make you stronger"
My version
"CHARGE!!! unless you are dead..."

The medium of transfer is not what matters, it's the value of the content!

This is what I told myself: Bullshit lecturer + Insufficient notes = YOU ARE SCREWED!

From the bottom of my heart, I wish you (referring to the whole class) all the luck in your future -Dr Nabil

Share knowledge because it multiplies, dont share money because it divides.

There is time to have fun and there is time to study

Put all your eggs into one basket and watch it

Always ask yourself, "what happened? what actually happened?" - Kok Lin
